Light Spring Jackets

I love to layer. Usually it's with a huge sweater or scarf, but when the weather warms up that option is not always feasible. Even with the huge handbag to shove it in. I decided to update my wardrobe a bit for spring by adding some lightweight jackets. An easy addition to make a simple tee & skinny jeans combo look put-together-without over-heating.

I mentioned this fall my search for the utilitarian/military/anorak jacket, and though I didn't end up purchasing one then, I now found the look in an easy, breezy spring style. I love the mushroom taupe shade and the chiffon fabric. A huge trend this Spring are kimono-inspired jackets. Loving layering like I do, I knew I had to add one to my wardrobe. I first started searching Forever 21 but ended up finding this one at Nordstrom Rack. I love that it has bright colours-yellow, coral, and green but in a delicate feathery print on a creme background. I am planning out so many outfits in my head- skinny jeans & ankle boots during the transitional phase and high-waisted shorts & gladiator sandals during peak temperatures.

Both these jackets are from the brand Daniel Rainn which is available at Nordstrom & Nordstrom Rack. Now the weather in NYC is unfortunately still coat worthy, but I am crossing my fingers that I'll be able to wear my new kimono jacket to the Cherry Blossom Festival this weekend!

Have you purchased any new things to update your wardrobe for Spring?
